The University of Virginia (UVa) is under fire for killing some of them.
According to the Human Rights and Scientific Honesty Initiative (HRSHI), 309 of them were killed by UVa’s own “Health” System in 1991. They were aborted, as were 264 the following year (source).
Denied their human rights, there were no first words, first kisses, or first loves for them. There will be no walk down the lawn for them at graduation either.
Despite their best effort to hide the fact, UVa routinely performs abortions and lies about it. When not spreading falsehoods, UVa is simply silent about the truth and hopes people won’t ask.
But thanks to our friends Sean Cannan, Kelsey Hazzard, and others at HRSHI, UVa is being exposed and called to account (letter of February 2011). Most recent letter here. Excellent radio interview here.
From HRSHI’s most recent letter to UVa, here’s my favorite quotation:
You have yourself attempted to justify these killings by citing the “legal framework” of United States Supreme Court precedent of Roe vs. Wade (1973), and the “compelling personal factors” of the mother only. You completely left out the compelling personal factors of fathers and their children alike. We feel compelled ourselves to remind you that slavery was once an institution that was acceptable within the legal framework as decided by the United States Supreme Court and state laws also, that this institution was also quite popular at UVA, and that slave traders and owners had compelling personal and financial reasons for trading or owning slaves. Throughout history, many such atrocities have been justified by those pretending that the humanity of their victims can simply be removed by decree. We are here to remind you that this is neither a scientifically accurate position, nor a sustainable medical opinion for a President of the public University of Virginia in 2012.
Help us show UVa what they are really doing. Help us go to UVa and every other college campus to expose their abortion business.
One of the rising stars in the pro-life movement is Kelsey Hazzard, a law student at the U of Virginia. She is also the founder and President of Secular Pro-Life. Her latest project is a new website, AbortionSafety.com, which will target abortion-minded women with malpractice data and other information related to the “safety” of abortion. Here’s the latest from Secular Pro-Life:
Secular Pro-Life announces a new women’s health website that will catalogue malpractice complaints against abortionists, and inform women about abortion’s risks and alternatives. The website, AbortionSafety.com, has already garnered support from key pro-life leaders.
Secular Pro-Life, which encourages cooperation among pro-life people of all faith backgrounds, is organizing the project.
“There is a wealth of information in the public record about abortion providers who have injured or killed women,” said Kelsey Hazzard, the president of Secular Pro-Life. “But the vast majority of women in crisis pregnancies simply don’t have the time or resources to go digging for that information themselves. AbortionSafety.com will centralize the data and make it freely available.”
A team of volunteers, primarily students, is working with local advocates to gather information on abortion providers across the country. AbortionSafety.com is set to go live in November 2011. Fundraising is underway to cover the cost of advertisements, which will be tied to Google searches for terms like “abortion clinic” and “safe abortion.”
The site has been endorsed by Kristan Hawkins, the executive director of Students for Life of America and Pro-Life Action League president Eric Scheidler, among others.
“AbortionSafety.com is going to be a unique project and tool for the pro-life movement, because it will enable us to save thousands of preborn lives and prevent women from experiencing the trauma of abortion,” Hawkins said.
The project was inspired by the “Chicago Method,” a type of sidewalk counseling developed by the Pro-Life Action League, in which sidewalk counselors distribute copies of malpractice complaints to women entering the abortion facility.
